10 on 10: February

Wow!  February already.  It really is true, "the older you get the faster time flies."  For this month's 10 on 10 blog-hop post, I found myself outside after several days of much needed and long overdue rain trying desperately to envision my garden in its springtime glory. That's rather hard to do when all that is visible are little bits of green poking through the mud.  Fortunately my herb garden has a couple of evergreen plants and the rosemary was even blooming. So here is a little glimpse into my garden (and a couple of pic's from inside the house).

after sustaining too many chips around the rim, my favorite mug has been transformed into a succulent planter

Gus had to check out what was happening on the window sill (and sample the succulent)

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this little look into my Sweet-life.  Now head on over to Stephanie's beautiful blog to continue the blog-hop and while you are there, don't forget to leave a little comment love!

    1. Thank you! The light was just stunning that afternoon. Usually it is far to glaring for any truly good shots, but there was still just enough cloud cover to soften things a bit. .

    1. Thanks, Kim. I'm hoping to really get things growing this year...it's time to revamp the raised beds.

  6. So funny, "after the rain" shots were also on my mind, but just weren't going to happen with a sick kid at home. Love that I get to live my idea through your glorious shots. And your garden looks far happier than mine at the moment ;) I have no idea what a "salad burnet" is, but boy do I love that picture, and lichen & moss always have a special place in my heart. You also should know that your adorable dog is partially responsible for my heart slowly softening to the idea of a new family pet (don't tell my kids though). Beautiful share Laura!
